From optimal brain function to muscle growth, broccoli is a power-packed vegetable.

Broccoli contains a high amount of potassium, which helps maintain a healthy nervous system and optimal brain function, as well as promotes regular muscle growth. Along with a high amount of potassium, Broccoli also contains magnesium and calcium that help regulate blood pressure.

One cup of broccoli contains the RDA of vitamin C, an antioxidant necessary for fighting against free radicals. Moreover, vitamin C is an effective antihistamine for easing the discomfort of the common cold.

Broccoli contains high levels of both calcium and vitamin K, both of which are important for bone health and prevention of osteoporosis. This wonder vegetable is also helpful in repairing skin damage thanks to the glucoraphanin it contains which helps the skin to detoxify and repair itself. In fact, one cup of broccoli bolsters the immune system with a large dose of beta-carotene. Trace minerals, such as zinc and selenium, further act to strengthen immune defense actions.
